A great summer event

Each July, Isle of Wight artists and crafts-people open their studios or homes to the public for two Open Studios weekends.  Visitors have the opportunity to meet local artists in their working environments, to see what they do and how they do it. 

For artists, Open Studios is a unique opportunity to manage their own events, exhibiting work and demonstrating their working processes.

UNIQUE

Open studios are as varied as you can imagine: in an artist's home, work room or garden, in purpose made studios, some in public venues. The beauty of visiting several studios is that each is unique, with its own charm - you're sure to come away feeling inspired.  When you see the red Open Studios flags, you know you've arrived!

OPEN STUDIOS IN 2013

Open Studios 2013 featured 156 artists, over two weekends. These included many of your favourite artists and a large number of new Island artists opening their studios for the first time. Many showed in public halls, which we hope will give better access to a wider range of work.  

 

HOW CAN I JOIN?

Applications to be included in the 2014 Yearbook are now closed. If you would still like to take part in the event, please contact us on info@isleofwightarts.com.
